Gowienczyk;2103523 said:It's really not underrated. It's just undervalued by 'radio rock' bands and that's where that ends.
Fizzeler;2103550 said:still sad though at least the flute is not underrated just used by only a handful of bands

Gowienczyk;2103569 said:Mainstream Music has always generally been lame, so I don't get the whole uproar about today's radio.

Fizzeler;2103398 said:I like the bassline to Wont Get Fooled Again amazing fun on RB have not bought a real Bass yet so can't say anything until I do
Gowienczyk;2103703 said:Well, I think I'm just at bias, I mean I adore a lot of the 80s/90s radio rock but 70s is kind of meh for me. 60s is good but passable, etc.
Fizzeler;2103734 said:I like pretty much radio from just the 70s and 60s and some 80s stuff 90s did not really click and I hate most 00s music
Gowienczyk;2103782 said:I HATE MOST MODERN MUSIC LOLOLOL.I hate that view. hatehatehate.
Alright_Computer;2103808 said:Especially when there are a lot of modern bands that are practically ripping off of "classic" bands.

JukeBoxHero;2103733 said:I have given that bass line a try, lazyness gets to me, so I haven't finished learning it yet. It is a fun bass line based off what I can play off it. CrimsonSaint: Dang it, I can't compete with that.
JukeBoxHero;2104025 said:My feeling of inept of most likely not being able to do those songs yet.
TheCrimsonSaint;2104071 said:Let me tell you something. I can't either. But the best way to get better is to fail really hard at really hard songs. For me, at least, things just automatically fall into place and all of sudden I'll pull off the insane 16th note run on Ktulu and be like HOLY **** YES!!!!
JukeBoxHero;2104117 said:Probably should starting doing that with Xanadu full time now. Testing this week kinda impedes on the process by I will get on it.
TheCrimsonSaint;2104149 said:What type of bass are you chugging away on?
JukeBoxHero;2104208 said:Fender Squire Jazz with the action lowered and Ernie Ball strings.
JukeBoxHero;2104278 said:I do like my bass but sometimes it feels like it's impending my progress as a bassist. My next bass is going to be a fretless for practice. This one looks rather nice for the price. http://www.rondomusic.com/spj3tsfl.html
TheCrimsonSaint;2104310 said:I'm going to have to be honest here... avoid any bass that cheap. Unfortunately, you pretty much get what you pay for with these instruments, and $300 is about the base for when the instrument starts being of solid quality.
JukeBoxHero;2104381 said:That is true, lately I've been thinking maybe of trying more of a upgrade than another bass. The fleabasses are intriguing, I like to hear one in action. I also like the color of schemes for those basses. http://www.fleabass.com/ I'll probably be doing a lot of testing before I make a purchase. Just to vent here also, I'm very ticked that Fender raised the price of their basses. Especially on the Geddy Lee model... http://bass-guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Fender-Geddy-Lee-Jazz-Bass-?sku=517881&src=3WFRWXX&ZYXSEM=0&CAWELAID=26044021$800 use be a goal I think I can do, $1200 is ridiculous in my mind. I love playing that bass too.
TheCrimsonSaint;2104455 said:Having experience with the Geddy J, I can tell you that that would be a brilliant use of $800. It's so buttery-smooth... it's wonderful. I wouldn't buy it, however, because try as I might, I can't get it to sound really fat. But it's so easy to play and it's tone is so perfect (too perfect, IMHO), that most non-metal bassists would be crazy to pass it up.
